OBJECTIVE We sought to determine lesion sites and spatial lesion patterns in spontaneous anterior interosseous nerve syndrome (AINS) with high-resolution magnetic resonance neurography (MRN). METHODS In 20 patients with AINS and 20 age- and sex-matched controls, MRN of median nerve fascicles was performed at 3T with large longitudinal anatomical coverage(More)
To investigate whether targeted magnetic resonance neurography (MRN) of the brachial plexus can visualise fibrous bands compressing the brachial plexus and directly detect injury in plexus nerve fascicles. High-resolution MRN was employed in 30 patients with clinical suspicion of either true neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) or non-specific TOS. The(More)
The authors compared ultrasonography with electrophysiology for the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) on 110 clinically affected wrists. An increased cross sectional area in the proximal carpal tunnel larger than 0.11 cm(2) in combination with compression signs on longitudinal scans proved to be highly predictive for CTS (sensitivity, 89.1%;(More)
The efficacy and safety of creatine monohydrate (Cr) in patients with myotonic dystrophy type 2/proximal myotonic myopathy were studied in a small placebo-controlled double-blind trial. Twenty patients received either Cr or placebo for 3 months. After 3 months, there were no significant differences of muscle strength as assessed by hand-held dynamometry,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the spatial pattern of lesion dispersion in posterior interosseous neuropathy syndrome (PINS) by high-resolution magnetic resonance neurography. METHODS This prospective study was approved by the local ethics committee and written informed consent was obtained from all patients. In 19 patients with PINS and 20 healthy controls, a(More)
The rare case of a patient with carpal tunnel syndrome caused by thrombosis of a persistent median artery is presented. Progressive pain in the wrist and dysesthesias in the third and fourth fingers were the atypical complaints. High-resolution ultrasonography revealed a bifid median nerve that was compressed by an occluded median artery. The intraoperative(More)
Endothelin-1 plays an important role as a paracrine factor in the regulation of regional blood flow. Plasma levels may represent the net result of spill-over from local stimulation/release and elimination of endothelin-1. In order to compare changes in the concentration of endothelin-1 in the plasma of subjects performing different types of sports exercises(More)
